This Is Not Justice

~~~ The Voice online edition "If former Maun Chief Magistrate, Tshegofatso Mogomotsi, had her way, all teenagers who have had sex with their young girlfriends would be in jail.
That seemed to be the chilling implication behind her judgment as three years into his prison sentence, details of the case against him emerged when Goabaone Goitse’s appeal came before the Francistown High Court this week.
Lawyers representing the young man have branded the original trial as ‘seriously flawed,’ and have described magistrate’s Mogomotsi’s crushing 12-year sentence as a travesty of justice.
The debate on whether juvenile sex should be decriminalized came to the fore at the Francistown High court this week in an appeal case involving a teenage boy who was sentenced to a 12-year jail term for having sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend."
